The Eagles are threadbare at cornerback (and elsewhere!), but Stampede Blue noted how TJ Carrie is coming off a strong season:
“Initially signed as ‘slot insurance’ to Kenny Moore last offseason, the 30 year old veteran cornerback ended up playing prominent action at outside cornerback—especially down the season’s stretch run. He was a … overall grade—including a +90.0 run defense grade. In coverage, he was targeted 42 times for an allowed 24 receptions (57.1% completion rate), 347 receiving yards, 2 touchdown receptions, and 2 interceptions.”
Carrie visited the New Orleans Saints last week but left town without a deal. The longer he lingers on the market, the more affordable he might be. His best option might be to reunite with Gannon on a one-year deal and try to test the market again next year.
The Eagles getting Carrie on a bargain deal could be a nice addition.
